The last record of the cannon was on the pathway next to Marigolds Cafe near the railway bridge.

The search tomorrow will be at 7.00pm.

Liz Baxandall, a volunteer at Renaissance Knaresborough, said: "No one is sure whether it will be there or not but it's exciting to try and find out. It is a bit of a mystery and everyone in the community would love to know what happened to it. It will be really nice to see what happens."
